 The Humpty Dumpty Circus
Of the Stewart Family

Photography by Andrew Stewart; Courtesy of Elizabeth F. Stewart

This photo, taken in 1911, shows Henry H. Stewart with the Humpty Dumpty circus he shared with brother William and sister Marion. The tent is an early menagerie model with a GE brown horse, a lady rider, and a (possibly) two-part head ringmaster. His daughter, Elizabeth Stewart, and her cousins now have many of his pieces and will provide us with photos. It is rare to find a Humpty Dumpty circus still in the family.
